Picosure Laser London

The PicoSure Pro Laser represents a new advancement vs your average skin rejuvenation treatment. As far as dermatological and cosmetic treatments go, The PicoSure laser offers a novel approach to skin rejuvenation and tattoo removal.

This laser therapy’s secret is its ultra-short energy pulses, measured in picoseconds (hence the name), enabling precise treatment of various skin issues with minimal thermal impact on surrounding tissues.

Benefits of PicoSure

Unmatched Precision with Picosecond Laser Pulses

Cynosure’s PicoSure laser treats using three available wavelengths. PicoSure’s efficacy is its picosecond laser pulses, which produce a photomechanical effect, PressureWave. This effect targets skin imperfections at a microscopic level, encouraging the body’s healing response and promoting the formation of new collagen and elastin while minimising thermal damage at the same time.

Enhanced Treatment with Focus Lens Array (FLA) Technology

In addition to the ability to use a shortened pulse width, PicoSure lasers employ a technology known as Focus Lens Array (FLA). This feature allows us to Focus increased laser power on smaller tissue areas of stubborn skin conditions to achieve more meaningful results. Results that are visible after just one treatment.

PicoSure vs. Traditional Skin Rejuvenation Methods

The PicoSure rejuvenation treatment offers a distinct advantage over traditional skin rejuvenation methods by relying less on heat, thus reducing recovery time and potential side effects. This technology’s picosecond approach to skin revitalisation ensures a safer, more comfortable patient experience with quicker and more visible results after fewer sessions.

Conditions treated with PicoSure Laser Treatment

Fine lines, Uneven Skin tone, Skin Pigmentation, Wrinkles, Tattoos, Acne Scars, Sun damage, and Age Spots.

PicoSure Laser for Pigmentation

PicoSure excels in comprehensive skin rejuvenation. It effectively treats fine lines, wrinkles, and textural irregularities by stimulating collagen production, a key factor in maintaining youthful skin. This technology also enhances skin tone and texture, giving patients a more radiant and even complexion. Patients report feeling more confident in their skin after PicoSure treatments.

The PicoSure laser is a cutting-edge technology used primarily for laser tattoo removal and skin revitalisation treatments. It operates differently from traditional lasers by delivering ultra-short pulses of energy to the skin in picoseconds (trillionths of a second). Here’s what the PicoSure laser accomplishes:

Laser Tattoo Removal

Ink Particle Breakdown: PicoSure’s rapid pulses create a photomechanical effect that shatters tattoo ink into minuscule particles, which are then more easily processed and eliminated by the body’s lymphatic system.

Colour Spectrum Effectiveness: It is exceptionally effective at removing difficult ink colours, such as blues and greens, as well as previously treated tattoos that have stopped responding to traditional laser treatments.

Skin Revitalisation

Collagen and Elastin Production: Beyond tattoo removal, PicoSure is utilised for skin treatments. It stimulates collagen and elastin production without the heat damage traditional lasers can cause, promoting healthier, more youthful skin.

Treatment of Pigmented Lesions: PicoSure Pro is effective in pigmentation treatment and pigmented lesions, such as sunspots, age spots, melasma and freckles, by breaking down the pigment without harming the surrounding skin.

Scar Treatment: It also offers benefits in the treatment of acne scars and other types of scarring by encouraging new skin cell production and reducing the appearance of scars.

The advantage of PicoSure lies in its efficiency and the reduced number of treatments needed for visible results, whether for removing tattoos or rejuvenating skin. Its ability to deliver quick, powerful pulses minimizes damage to surrounding tissue, leading to quicker recovery times and less discomfort compared to other laser treatments.

Frequently Ask Questions

How long does PicoSure last?

The durability of results from PicoSure treatments depends on the specific application. For laser tattoo removal, the outcomes are permanent; once a tattoo is fully erased, it does not return, although the number of sessions required can vary by tattoo characteristics. In contrast, skin revitalisation effects achieved with PicoSure—such as diminished wrinkles, less visible scars, or lighter pigmented lesions—are enduring but not everlasting. Factors like age, lifestyle, and skin care habits play roles in how long these benefits last. Maintenance treatments can help extend the rejuvenated look. Overall, PicoSure Pro offers effective and lasting solutions within its respective treatment realms, with permanence for laser tattoo removal and sustained but naturally fading results for skin treatments.

Can PicoSure lighten skin?

PicoSure laser can lighten skin by targeting pigments in the skin such as sunspots, age spots, and hyperpigmentation. It delivers short pulses of energy that break down the pigment, leading to a lighter skin appearance. It can also improve skin tone and texture. A free consultation with our practitioners is necessary to determine if PicoSure is the right option for you.

How painful is PicoSure?

The experience of pain with PicoSure treatments varies from person to person, but most individuals report a sensation that is generally less discomforting than traditional laser treatments. Patients often describe the sensation of the PicoSure laser as similar to the snapping of a rubber band against the skin. The discomfort level can also depend on the treatment area’s sensitivity, the individual’s pain tolerance, and the specific procedure being performed.

How PicoSure Pro laser tattoo removal works

In conventional Q-switch laser tattoo removal systems, the pigment particles that make up your tattoo ink are broken up by photodynamic energy, which is mainly heat.

It is effective, but it requires up to 20 sessions spaced at least 6 weeks apart. This makes the process difficult and drawn out.

Contrarily, Picosure employs picosecond technology, which applies extremely brief, extremely strong pulses to the tattoo pigment to break up ink particles much more quickly without harming the surrounding skin. As a result, you can get rid of your tattoo in as little as three to five sessions, which requires less recovery time between treatments. That is a 60% reduction in treatments! Imagine all the time and money you will be able to save.

How does the PicoSure Pro system work?

The PicoSure system operates using laser energy in picosecond pulses. These pulses last trillionths of a second, which is quite brief. This quick and powerful energy delivery causes a photo-thermal effect that breaks down tattoo ink into smaller particles. By using pressure waves rather than heat waves, PicoSure minimises harm to surrounding tissues, in contrast to nanosecond lasers. This focused method is a game-changer in tattoo removal because it speeds up ink removal and shortens the healing period.

Is the PicoSure Pro treatment suitable for all skin types?

Caucasian, Mediterranean, and Light Asian skin types are the best candidates for PicoSure Pro laser technology, which guarantees a secure and efficient tattoo removal procedure. The revolutionary 755 nm wavelength specifically targets black, blue, and green inks and produces outstanding results.

Can PicoSure and PicoSure Pro remove coloured ink tattoos?

The Picosure Pro technique is incredibly effective at getting rid of blue, green, and shading ink. Various successful treatments conducted at DR Clinic have shown that blue ink can sometimes be eliminated in just one session with shorter wavelengths, reducing downtime.

What makes PicoSure Pro different from other lasers?

Because of its distinct methodology and picosecond pulse duration, PicoSure lasers stand out from other lasers. It minimises harm to surrounding tissues by employing pressure waves instead of heat waves, which speeds up ink removal and shortens the healing period. This distinguishes PicoSure from conventional nanosecond lasers in terms of efficiency and safety.

How often will I need to be treated with Picosure Pro?

You can have a one-off treatment for a special occasion or have it done every week. If you’re looking to maintain your look long-term, we recommend having a top-up every 4-6 weeks.
